Assessment Academy

Spend less time marking. Track and create learning. Lead great assessment practice to drive pupil progress across your school. Assess Better.

The Project

There has never been a greater need for educators to have high-quality training and support in classroom assessment.

Over the last few years, we at Evidence Based Education have trained thousands of teachers around the world, in assessment and in using research evidence. We have heard similar calls from teachers and school leaders around the world: they felt a need to know how assessment could be done more effectively, and how they could harness it to make a real difference to pupil progress.

Welcome to Assessment Academy

In answer to these calls, in partnership with Durham University’s Professor Rob Coe and Cambridge Assessment, we set about creating such a course that is pragmatic, affordable and evidence-based, applicable to all contexts, subjects and schools. Assessment Academy was born.
